    Medication Administration Training (MAT) Independent Study Overview

    Overview Caring for children is a rewarding and demanding profession. You work hard to develop a caring and trusting relationship with the children in your program. To provide the best care, you learn techniques and strategies for offering a nurturing and responsive environment for children. Part of this care may include giving medication to help children maintain or regain their health.

    The Medication Administration Training (MAT) course is a skills-based training to help you give medication safely in your program. The course is eight (8) hours of training and includes information on video, in written handouts and practice exercises, and through hands-on demonstrations.

    The training provides an overview of medication effects and ways to give both over-the-counter and prescription medication; safe handling, storage and disposal of medication; permission and instruction requirements; preparation and administration techniques; asthma information; and instruction regarding emergency care and special situations.

    You are eligible to complete the MAT course if you are: (a) a child day care provider whose program is licensed or registered by the New York State Office

    of Children and Family Services (OCFS); or (b) an employee of an OCFS-licensed Group Family Day Care or Day Care Center program OR

    an employee of an OCFS-registered Family Day Care, School-Age Child Care or Small Day Care Center program; or

    (c) a legally exempt provider serving children whose care is funded through public child care subsidy.

    To obtain your MAT certificate, you can complete the MAT course in two ways: through classroom instruction or independent study. This guide is for providers who are interested in completing the course by independent study. If you would like more information about completing the MAT course through classroom instruction, visit www.ecetp.pdp.albany.edu.

    MAT Independent Study The Medication Administration Training (MAT) Independent Study course is comprised of two parts. Part One is a self-paced in-depth study of the MAT course content, using handouts, videos and independent exercises. Part Two consists of hands-on practice time and testing with an approved MAT Trainer.

    Part One: Content The MAT course consists of eleven modules, ranging from medication effects to safe medication

    administration. The material for each of these modules is available for download from the MAT Program website: www.ecetp.pdp.albany.edu/mat.aspx.

    To successfully complete Part One, you must print the MAT Participant Materials and view all of the MAT videos in their entirety. While viewing the videos, follow the corresponding handout and complete all practice exercises as instructed in the MAT video. You MUST bring your MAT Participant Materials (including the completed practice exercises) with you to Part Two of the MAT Independent Study course. During Part Two, the MAT Trainer will verify your completion of Part One, including the practice exercises. If you have not completed Part One, the MAT Trainer will not admit you into the Part Two class.

    Part Two: Practice and Testing Once you have reviewed all of the MAT course content in Part One, you must complete

    testing in order to receive a MAT certificate. You will complete a written test and three (3) skills demonstrations (random skills competency, liquid measuring competency, and epinephrine auto-injector [EpiPen® or Auvi-Q®] skills competency). This part of MAT Independent Study is completed in a classroom with an approved MAT Trainer. Before you are tested by the MAT Trainer, you will have time to practice all of the skills you studied and to ask questions.

    Part One One of the most notable benefits of the MAT Independent Study course is the opportunity to study the MAT materials on your own, at your own pace. The MAT course content is divided into these training modules:

    • Introduction • Module 1: An Introduction to Medication Administration Training • Module 2: The Five Rights of Safe Medication Administration • Module 3: Medication Overview • Module 4: Handling Medication • Module 5: Safe Medication Administration • Module 6: Safety Precautions Related to Medication Administration • Module 7: Preparation and Administration Techniques • Module 8: Asthma • Module 9: Emergency Care • Module 10: Special Situations • Module 11: Conclusion

    Completing Part One of MAT Independent Study Be sure to read this study guide as you complete each training module. Since each module builds upon information covered in the previous modules, it is important for you to complete the modules in order. When you start a module, make sure you have all the handouts. Each module includes at least one video component, so you need to have access to your computer while reviewing the handouts.
